The Sinking of The Titanic:An Ice-Pilots Perspective Marmaduke Collins
A voyage across the ocean becomes the odyssey of a lifetime for a young Irish woman…. Ireland, 1912… Fourteen members of a small village set sail on RMS Titanic, hoping to find a better life in America. For 17-year-old Maggie Murphy, the journey is bittersweet. Though her future lies in an unknown new place, her heart remains in Ireland with Samus, the sweetheart she left behind. When disaster strikes, Maggie is one of the few passengers in steerage to survive. Waking up alone in a New York hospital, she vows never to speak of the terror and panic of that fateful night again. Chicago, 1982… Adrift after the death of her father, Grace Butler struggles to decide what comes next. When her great-grandmother Maggie shares the painful secret about Titanic that she´s harbored for almost a lifetime, the revelation gives Grace new direction and leads both her and Maggie to unexpected reunions with those they thought lost long ago. Inspired by true events, The Girl Who Came Home poignantly blends fact and fiction to explore the Titanic tragedy´s impact and its lasting repercussions on survivors and their descendants. 1.

What is your destiny? This question haunts 20-year-old Jamie Collins. A junior at Santa Clara University in 1986, Jamie has friends, a professor who mentors him, and a promising future as a writer. Then the dreams begin - nightmarish visions that transport him to a time and place fifty years before he was born: Titanic´s maiden voyage in 1912! With less than a week to go before the 74th anniversary of its sinking, Jamie discovers that his fate is inexplicably linked to that of the famous vessel. Somehow, the two timelines are overlapping, and when Titanic dies this time, Jamie will die along with it. The dreams reveal something evil stalking the ill-fated ship, something that expedites the collision which sinks her. Jamie realizes that the only way to stop this evil and prevent his own death may be to prevent Titanic from sinking in the first place. But how? How can he stop that ship from sinking in 1912 when he hadn´t even been born yet? And even if he can stop it - should he? What will be the effect on history if he succeeds? Jamie´s quest to fulfill his destiny ties friends and family together in ways he could never have imagined. A Matter of Time is an emotionally charged voyage into the value of friendship, the power of love, the impact of evil, and the vagaries of Fate. A Matter of Time is a 2012 Reader´s Favorite Silver Medal Winner. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Aaron Landon. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/019417/bk_acx0_019417_sample.mp3.

In the year 2137 the world stands on the brink of ruin. Pollution, war and overpopulation have darkened the skies, photosynthesis is failing and most of the Earth´s 20 billion souls face starvation and death. The only hope for survival lays with the fertile fields of Mars, where a 30-year terraforming effort is turning vast swaths of the red planet to green. But to the leaders of the Cartel, a conglomeration of the world´s most powerful families, using Mars to feed the overpopulated masses of the Earth is a waste of resources. They have another plan - take Mars for themselves and leave the Earth to self-destruct on its own. The only thing standing in their way is the idealistic President Jackson Collins, head of the United World Government and unquestioned leader of the World Military Forces, who believes that humanity must rise or fall as one. As the tide of war rises, James Collins, the President´s son, a lifelong soldier and a weary veteran of his father´s military campaigns, returns from the field disillusioned and doubtful as to whether humanity is even worth saving. Though he wants nothing more than to walk away, James soon finds himself drawn into the swirling vortex of battle and caught in the titanic struggle that will decide the fate of two worlds. 1.

The Man Who Melted is a warning for the future. It is the Brave New World and 1984 for our time, for it gives us a glimpse into our own future - a future ruled by corporations that control deadly and powerful forms of mass manipulation. It is a prediction of what could happen... tomorrow. The Man Who Melted examines how technology affects us and changes our morality, and it questions how we might remain human in an inhuman world. Will the future disenfranchise or empower the individual? Here you´ll find new forms of sexuality, new perversions, new epiphanies, and an entirely new form of consciousness. Would you pay to ´´go down´´ with the Titanic?In this dystopia, the Titanic is brought back from the bottom of the sea and refurbished, only to be sunk again for those who want the ultimate decadent experience. Some passengers pay to commit suicide by ´´going under´´ with the ship. The Man Who Melted has been called ´´one of the greatest science fiction novels of all time´´ by Science Fiction Age and is considered a genre classic. It is the stunning odyssey of a man searching through the glittering, apocalyptic landscape of the next century for a woman lost to him in a worldwide outbreak of telepathic fear. Here is a terrifying future where people can gamble away their hearts (and other organs) and telepathically taste the last flickering thoughts of the dead. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin T.
